As the whereabouts of Mr.Sullivan Chime, governor of Enugu state continues to be a mystery, the State Government has dismissed as a non-issue, a letter purportedly written by a group, Save Enugu Group, to the Acting governor, Sunday Onyebuchi, asking him to address the state on the whereabouts of its governor and demanding that a delegation be sent to visit him.
In a statement signed by Chukwudi Achife, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Chime, the state government said though it did not intend to join issues with those it described as “habitual attention-seekers,” it was obvious that having realised that their media attacks had not achieved their intended results, they had now chosen to issue baseless statements as a group.
The statement read: “Government does not intend to join issues with these habitual attention-seekers. This is, at best, the coming together of men whose views on the incumbent government are well-known and always predictable.
“It is obvious that having realized, perhaps most painfully, that their media attacks have not achieved their pre-determined goal, they have now chosen to issue a statement as a group.
